An excellent example of a school applying Web 2.0

Wonderful stuff! A New Zealand teacher, Allanah King, explains her and her classroom/school’s journey through the world of web 2.0 (social tagging, blogging and podcasting).

It’s just a reminder of how rich learning can be with technology and using the web. Now how could the powers that be choose to limit this? In this example, each classroom had a blog and students could post news and responses to what they were learning about. A natural network of collaboration was set up because students could post comments to each other’s blog postings.

I love how the students got to watch the Clustermap of their blog to see who was looking at their site. It would be a great segue into a geography lesson.

    Your welcome, Allanah. It was a great overview of what you and your school were able to accomplish. I would be interested in learning more about you and your school’s work in particular safety measures and communications with parents. Again, good work!
